Dashboard is buckled all the way across. Keeps getting worse and I'm afraid the airbag on the passenger side will deploy causing me to have an accident. I am afraid to drive it but it is my only means of transportation. I would appreciate any help with this matter. Buick really should consider a recall for this before someone gets hurt or worse yet killed. Thanks

problem #6

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • miles
My dashboard started to separate from the drivers side and is going over to passengers side airbag. Half way there now.I'm worried about the airbag going off when I'm driving. The dealer says it cannot be fixed that it needs to have a whole new dashboard put in. I think this is happening to alot of the Buick Lesabre. It just keeps going little by little everyday over to the passenger side and I'm worried. I don't think I should have to be the one to pay for this product that was faulty in the first place.
